After Calling for Trump Supporters to Be Harassed Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters Cancels Attending Two Events After She Says She Received Increased Threats
HONESTLY, WHAT DID MAD MAX THINK THE BLOW BACK WAS GOING TO BE, OR IS THAT WHAT SHE INTENDED ALL ALONG?
I am going to preface all of this by stating, no one, and I mean no one, neither those on the LEFT or the RIGHT should be making threats of any type, whether they be death threats or any type of threat. All any of you are trying to do is shut down Freedom of Speech. Threats of any type are just that, threats. And for you low IQ individuals out there, maybe you will one day realize just how ignorant you really are. That being said, going after one’s policies or protesting a politician is fine, as long as its civil. Calling for people to harass in public, not allowing them to be welcome anywhere like restaurants, gas stations or harassing them at their home is hardly civil. Of course people have a right to civil protest; however, what we are seeing today is hardly civil. Politicians like Maxine Waters know better.
As reported at CNN, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) had to cancel attending two events after she says she has received an increase in threats in the wake of her inappropriate and ignorant comments Waters made last week where she encouraged Left-wing protesters to harass members of Trump’s Cabinet in public spaces. Rep. Waters says she canceled two scheduled appearances in Alabama and Texas this weekend after saying she got threatening messages and “hostile mail” at her office, including “one very serious death threat.” If true, this is terrible. But what did she expect when she went as low as she did and called for the harassment of Trump cabinet members and supporters in the public square? You mess with the bull and you’ll get the horn. When you call for harassment, when you tell people to create a crowd and push back on people and tell them that they are not welcome any more, any place … good grief, are you really that low IQ that you do not comprehend that you will bring out the worst on the other side? Or maybe, just maybe, that’s what the divisive Mad Max was after all along.
Rep. Maxine Waters should never receive death threats or any type of threat. I condemn those that do such a thing. Just as I condemn Maxine Waters for trying to incite her peeps to harass and make threats against people she disagrees with. To not to condemn violence and harassment would be a double standard. Actually, I hold Rep. Waters to a high standard as she is supposed to be and act like a U.S. Representative where she is referred to in the House when called on as the “Gentle Lady” from California. Her actions of late only make the last part true, she is in fact from California. I would call on all politicians to ratchet it down a bit with the fanning of flames of harassment and violence. You can’t put the genie back in the bottle. That being said, there is proportionality of levels of civility, name calling like “Crooked Hillary,”low IQ” and “Pocahontas” from President Trump is hardly the same as shouting into a bull horn firing up a rabid base saying … “And if you see anyone from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them that they are not welcome, any more, anywhere.”
So the question that needs to be asked of Rep. Waters is when she sows the seeds of such divisions and decides to be the sole arbitrator of where individuals she disagrees with are welcome or allowed … wouldn’t others who disagree with her be allowed to hold her to the same standard? Everyone just chill. We used to be able to debate civilly, yet passionately without demonizing the other side, or did we like when Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson Claims “Republicans Want You To Die?”
Maxine Waters on Trump administration: ” … you create a crowd, you push back on them.
Rep. Maxine Waters said Thursday she’s seen an increase in threats since she made controversial comments last week encouraging protesters to heckle and harass members of Trump’s Cabinet in public spaces.
The California Democrat canceled two scheduled appearances in Alabama and Texas this weekend after saying she got threatening messages and “hostile mail” at her office, including “one very serious death threat” on Monday from an individual in Texas.
“As the President has continued to lie and falsely claim that I encouraged people to assault his supporters, while also offering a veiled threat that I should ‘be careful’, even more individuals are leaving (threatening) messages and sending hostile mail to my office,” she said in a statement.
“There was one very serious death threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were cancelled (sic) this weekend,” she continued. “This is just one in several very serious threats the United States Capitol Police are investigating in which individuals threatened to shoot, lynch, or cause me serious bodily harm.”
So she is looking to harass, not protest, harass cabinet members until they can’t take it anymore in working for President Trump. This is also a bullying tactic to threaten people who might work for the President or disagree with her. This is shameful. By the way, the unconscionable way of dealing with illegal children was also done under President Obama, but Mad Max was silent during the Obama years. Imagine that.
“For these members of his Cabinet who remain and try to defend him they’re not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they’re not going to be able to stop at a gas station, they’re not going to be able to shop at a department store, the people are going to turn on them, they’re going to protest, they’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the president ‘no I can’t hang with you, this is wrong this is unconscionable and we can’t keep doing this to children,’ ” Waters said on Saturday.
WHY DO THEY BULLY?
Bullying is not okay and my heart breaks for Keaton Jones from Tennessee. A message to Keaton, stay strong and don’t let these bastards keep you down. Keaton’s mom, Kimberly Jones said in a Facebook post Friday she had just picked up her son, Keaton, from school because he was too afraid to go to lunch. SAD! Before zero tolerance in schools, I can remember a time and place in a time long ago when one used to be able to defend oneself against bullying with a knuckle sandwich. Don’t you remember that to LB? I can’t say I understand the go fund me page for Keaton. Giving money is not going to stop bullying.
A Tennessee woman’s video of her son’s tearful recounting of being bullied at middle school has prompted a wave of support from athletes and entertainers. One star is even going as far as to reward the young boy in a big way.
The video of Keaton had more than 18 million views as of Sunday, and a crowdsourcing page for his future education has raised more than $29,000.
The post has gone so viral that celebrities far and wide are taking notice and offering their support to young Keaton. However, one star is going above and beyond to reward the young boy for his persevearance. Chris Evans, who will reprise his role as Captain America in the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War,” took to Twitter to not only share his support, but to invite the young boy to Los Angeles for the film’s premiere.
“Stay strong, Keaton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better,” the star wrote. “While those punks at your school are deciding what kind of people they want to be in this world, how would you and your mom like to come to the Avengers premiere in LA next year?”
THE LIBERAL MEDIA DOUBLE STANDARD: WHO THINKS NBC WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME IF THE NAME HARVEY WEINSTEIN WAS REPLACED WITH DONALD TRUMP?
What is worse than fake news? How about news that is knowing not reported to meet an agenda?
The below article below from the HUFFPO regarding Ronan Farrow, an NBC News contributor, had secured an interview with a woman who was willing to appear on camera, in silhouette, her identity concealed, saying that Harvey Weinstein had raped her is even larger than the crime of rape itself. As if sexual assault and rape is not bad enough. But for a news outlet like NBC to knowingly, willfully and purposely spike the Weinstein story because of who he was might be even more heinous. An effort by the liberal MSM to protect their own. Would they have done the same for say, Donald Trump? Hell no! As we all know that NBC News and MSNBC certainly ran with the Billy Bush-Trump tapes. But some how, a raunchy tape of two men disgusting talk about woman is worse than a predator who for decades sexually assaulted women in Hollywood. Really? Everyone knew the truth. They knew the stories were much more than rumors, but the liberal media decided to take part in a systemic quashing of the story for fear one of their own would be outed for the disgusting, POS, predator that he was. SHAME ON YOU NBC.
The NBC peacock is Dead
In mid-August, Ronan Farrow, an NBC News contributor, had secured an interview with a woman who was willing to appear on camera, in silhouette, her identity concealed, and say Harvey Weinstein had raped her, according to four people with close knowledge of the reporting. It was a pivotal moment in a testy, months-long process of reporting a story that had bedeviled a generation of media and Hollywood reporters.
Farrow had a lot of material already. In March, he had acquired a damning and much-coveted audio recording in which Weinstein admits to having groped an Italian model. He had interviews with former executives and assistants who’d worked closely with Weinstein who spoke about the culture of harassment and abuse he perpetrated. And now he had someone ready to accuse Weinstein of rape, on camera.
But at that moment Farrow was also caught in the pincers of an NBC News edict. He had been told by executives at NBC News that he didn’t have enough reporting to go on air with his Weinstein story, according to four sources, and he had been told by the network to stop reporting on it. NBC tried to put a stop to the interview with the woman accusing Weinstein of rape. The network insisted he not use an NBC News crew for the interview, and neither was he to mention his NBC News affiliation. And so that was how Ronan Farrow wound up paying out of his own pocket for a camera crew to film an interview.
As a project for NBC News, Farrow’s story was effectively dead. Later that month, he received permission to take his reporting to another news organization. The story that resulted, published Tuesday by The New Yorker, was a blockbuster: multiple women accusing Weinstein of rape and other sexual misconduct, accompanied by the audio of Weinstein admitting to sexual assault. [...]
Then he struck a rueful tone, suggesting that the NBC iteration of the story had died of natural causes. “We reached a point over the summer where we, as an organization, didn’t feel that we had all the elements that we needed to air,” he said.
Yet interviews with 12 people inside and outside NBC News with direct knowledge of the reporting behind Farrow’s story suggest a different cause of death. All of the sources who spoke to HuffPost asked not to be named, either because they weren’t authorized to speak to the media about the story or because they were fearful of retribution from NBC News executives. These sources detailed a months-long struggle within NBC News during which Oppenheim and other executives slow-walked Farrow’s story, crippling it with their qualms and irresolution.
Toward the end, the concerns seemed to take on a personal tone, and it became difficult to tell where the Weinstein team’s attempts to discredit the story left off and NBC News’ editorial forbearance began. According to multiple sources inside and outside of NBC News who worked on the aborted story, Oppenheim related to Farrow what Weinstein’s lawyers had said in complaint to NBC:
Seth MacFarlane Explains His 2012 Oscar Best Supporting Actress Harvey Weinstein Joke … “Congratulations, You Five Ladies No Longer have to Pretend to be Attracted to Harvey Weinstein.” (VIDEO)
MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, HOLLYWOOD KNEW AND ALL THE LIBERAL POLITICIANS WHO TOOK THEIR MONEY KNEW AS WELL …
Many people, not in Hollywood, wondered what was meant when following Seth MacFarlane providing the 2012 Oscar nominations for ‘Best Supporting Actresses,’ he made the following joke, that was supposed to be more of a commentary rather than joke. However, from the reaction of those in attendance, you can tell they knew exactly what MacFarlane was referring to.
“CONGRATULATIONS, YOU 5 LADIES NO LONGER HAVE TO PRETEND TO BE ATTRACTED TO HARVEY WEINSTEIN.”
The sad reality is, they all knew and did and said nothing. The actresses and actors knew, the producers and directors knew. Hell, the best boys and key grips knew. More importantly, Hollywood knew … and did nothing. More so, the liberal MSM knew and so did the liberal politicians like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, who consistently went to these people for campaign money. Don’t ever believe the acting job that Hillary Clinton just found out about this. I am sure it was just another right wing conspiray like with her former president husband Bubba. Or Barack Obama, acting as if this is news to him. Both are cringe worthy of an Oscar themselves. They are all enablers, including the NY Times.
When hosting the Oscars five years ago, Seth MacFarlane made a bold joke about Harvey Weinstein.
Now, in the light of a stunning array of sexual misconduct allegations against the powerhouse producer, The Family Guy creator is explaining the full context of his remark.
Barth was one of the women to come forward with allegations against Weinstein in The New Yorker‘s bombshell story published Tuesday. According to Barth, the disgraced executive allegedly invited her to his hotel room, where, the New Yorker claims, he was, “alternat[ing] between offering to cast her in a film and demanding a naked massage in bed … When she moved toward the door to leave, Weinstein lashed out, saying that she needed to lose weight ‘to compete with Mila Kunis,’ and then, apparently in an effort to mollify her, promising a meeting with one of his female executives.”
“He gave me her number, and I walked out and I started bawling,” Barth told The New Yorker.
THE SHARKS ARE IN THE WATER … This time its racial discrimination.
Yet another lawsuit from previous employees at Fox News. Kelly Wright, a black reporter and anchor who has been with Fox News since 2003, is one of 13 plaintiffs, all people of color who are either current or former Fox News employees, to sue the network in the last month charging racial discrimination. Of course this comes on the foot heals of the ousting of Bill O Reilly and the accusations made against Fox News conservative host Sean Hannity. Most likely noticeably absent from the plaintiffs would be Charles Payne, Juan Williams, Larry Elder, or Arthel Neville .
Fox News’ legal troubles grew even larger Tuesday, with new plaintiffs, including an anchor, joining a suit alleging racial discrimination and harassment at the network.
The suit is now headlined by Kelly Wright, a black reporter and anchor who has been with Fox News since 2003. Wright claims that he “has been effectively sidelined and asked to perform the role of a ‘Jim Crow’ — the racist caricature of a Black entertainer.”
Wright’s allegations involve, among others, recently fired Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and current network co-president Bill Shine.
The suit claims that Wright was shunned from O’Reilly’s now-canceled program, “The O’Reilly Factor,” and that Shine “has demonstrated an obsession with race when it comes to discussions with Mr. Wright, including regularly asking him, ‘how do Black people react to you’ and ‘how do you think White viewers look at you?’”
In one alleged example, Wright claims that he was rebuffed in his efforts to show a series of positive stories about the African-American community on the “Factor” because, according to the complaint, “it showed Blacks in ‘too positive’ a light.”
It would appear that the liberal media are adding fuel to the fire as Breitbart opines, this Wednesday’s episode of NBC’s long-running crime drama Law and Order: SVU will focus on a powerful news executive who has been accused of sexually assaulting one of his network’s on-air personalities.
The episode appears to be inspired by former Fox News network chief Roger Ailes, who resigned following a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson.
While the episode appears to be styled to mimic the real-life drama surrounding Ailes, none of Ailes’ accusers, including former Fox News star anchor Megyn Kelly, have ever accused the former Fox News chief of rape.
UPDATE I: Kelly Wright Says, “Well, I’m not here to be a token, either. I’m here to be a valued employee.”
Just curious, what exactly was it that Wright was discriminated against? At any given time you could have gone to any one of the other networks. He stated that he admires and loves the very people he is going against. He should be respected for having principles, but he also claims to love the very people he is against. What makes Kelly Wright or any one of the others suing Fox News is not the same at CNN, MSNBC et all.
